Strengthening Indigenous Advocacy by Honoring Our Sacred Connections to Earth Mother

- Friday, June 02, 2017

NIWRC Specialty Institute will focus on connections between violence against Earth Mother & violence against Indigenous peoples.

We will look at the parallels of violence in tribal communities, i.e., domestic-sexual violence and assault against our land, the disappearance (missing and murdered) of our women-children and our vanishing precious resources.

We will more clearly understand how increased crime, including domestic violence, assault, murder, rape and sex trafficking against Native women and children comes from a long history of violence perpetuated against our women and our land.

Services our people need often are lacking or inaccessible, participants will be better able to change or increase the types of available services, including shelters, develop culturally appropriate interventions/preventions, improve partnerships and collaborations, and impact positive changes in law and policy.
